to the port of dunkirk. that's what we know as the evacuation of dunkirk. >> before you go any further, when did the british come across the channel into france? >> i think they must have done this, maybe even as early as 1938, or, but certainly after the war in 1939 started. they put the british army next to the french in anticipation of the germans coming. of course, by land through the low lands in belgium. so the british army was there in place. and it was really the best that they had. so the fact that they were pushed to dunkirk and forced to evacuate -- >> which is on the channel. >> is on the channel, was a tremendous blow to the british, and to the french. the british of course had to leave the continent across the channel, and the french were then crippled in defense of paris. part of the problem with the dunkirk evacuation by the british was that the left all their equipment in france. they had no time to take their guns, their tanks, their trucks. so the when the british soldiers ended up in southern england after the evacuation, they really only had uniform's on the backs. >> wh

down. by the time, only a matter of eight seconds later that the next two sharper ports had cracked out everyone knew what they were now. lyndon johnson was down on the floor in the back seat of the car, curled over on his right side. the sudden large -- loud, sharp sound, the hand suddenly grabbing the shoulder and pulling in down, now he was on the floor. his face on the floor with the weight of a big man lying on top of him pressing and down, lyndon johnson would say that he would never forget his knees in my back at his elbows in my back and young blood is sitting half sitting at half lying on top of him to protect a man young blood is wearing a short wave radio to keep in communication with other cars and over this short wave radio, crackling in johnson's year, would favor saying in the first two card ahead, johnson here's he is hit, he is hit and begins to hear the word hospital. youngblood tells the driver of his car close it up because he knows his maximum protection is going to be close to that secret service, are. the driver of johnson's car is the texas highway patrolman name
was there was a coastal port, a major fortification, the allies needed to resupply their forces and needed the harbor. the only problem was there was another gun issue. like pointe du hoc it was a suicide mission. the battery, the grass battery, as many people called it, had massive battle should sized guns that were buried most of the entire fortress was buried underground, picture kind of a four story building fortress that had been buried underground. there were elevator's going down, there was an entire hospital, mess hall, everything. to the naked eye, you look across a farmer's field and all you see is a tiny little pillbox, that was the battery and for months the men of "dog company" tried to find that battery and take it. that was their objective. the guns were devastating. they fought on hill's 63 in the men described to me how the shells came over like freight trains. the shells could destroy an entire hedgerow, small mound of earth and barry men alive and that is exactly what happened. a fox for several weeks in this place and what is amazing is a small team of four men, known as the fabul

[applause] >> i did just write this name to the michelle held up committed to better achieve, brought up of hope and change. i did it because i was talking to the national review online come and interview and said why did she write this? is admit to to be an awakening, something like that? i said you bet it is. it stuns me that half of the american population completely fell for this empty mantra of hope and change. the obama administration was going to be that transcendent administration that got us all together. that is why barack obama earned the white house because he was going to be the great uniter. remember that inaugural address where he said to conservatives, i want to listen to you, especially when we disagree. he was going to meet with conservatives in congress want to wreak. he met twice. so three days after that beautiful speech, the cons
airbases and develop a port there as well to facilitate the u.s. effort in the vietnam war and know so many american soldiers went to bangkok and spent a lot of time there. in terms of direct support and more peripheral support, thailand was a close ally and an important part of the war effort. >> to that country of soldiers in vietnam? >> absolutely. i said i concentrate on the book. thailand send 37,000 soldiers to fight in south vietnam. they also sent smaller naval units and air units. this still definitely combat units outsiders the province working with united states, the south vietnamese and other allies, filipinos and south koreans. >> what about casualties? >> 500 plus casualties -- i should say 500 died in south vietnam while fighting what we call it the viacom in the south. it's an important detail to focus on. to dismiss them with the insulting nature to use as an american mercenary paid for a lot of the military hardware and transportation logistics and extra pay the troops received and also tends to focus on black-market schemes. but the truth behind it all his soldiers were f

of the ship, port to the iceberg dead ahead and demand that the captain change course before it's too late. they, the gun industry, its profiteers, zealots, and apoll gists, its political stooges and constitutional originalists who would think that the 18th century really means perpetuating a wild wet here in the 20th century. don't tread on us. get off our well-armed backs. there's nothing you can do. of course there is. register all guns, license all gun owners. require stringent background checks. get tough on assault weapons of ankind. crack down on high capacity ammunition, as the president has now proposed. then, enforce the laws. yes, i know. determined killers will always find a way, but we can minimize the opportunities and scale back the scope of destruction. why do we accept the need for driver's licenses or submit to the sometimes humiliating body scans at airports? because it's the law, and deep down we know we're safer for the inconvenience of the law. good laws are hard to come by. civilization, just as hard. the rough and tumble of politics makes them so. but democracy aims
